Reggae singer Jah Cure made several headlines in the UK between yesterday and today. One such disturbing headline stated - Rape Row as ‘New Bob Marley - OutAroad.com gets to understand that this headline had fans murmuring. It is also said to be that fans in the UK hailed Jah Cure as the new Bob Marley, but their new Bob Marley will have to Get Up, Stand Up And Fight For His Right on his tour of the UK coming this October. Jah Cure will face a strong battle from several women’s rights groups in the UK who are not pleased of having the singer in their country.
When OutAroad.com contacted Jah Cure’s production team and asked about the situation, the director of Danger Zone Records and Danger Zone Promotions Delmar Drummond said, there’s no such thing about Jah Cure being banned from entering the UK. We applied for a visa earlier but were not successful, but this doesn’t mean that the singer is banned. I don’t know where all these allegations are coming from because we are currently in the process of trying to secure his visa for his October dates.
With a sold out tour in place for Jah Cure, the women’s rights groups, options are either to get patrons to abandon the shows and if that doesn’t happens then they will protest outside the venue of his concerts.
In the year 1999 Jah Cure was convicted of rape and sentenced to 19 years in prison even though no DNA evidence was obtained to connect him to the crime. He later requested for an appeal and his sentence reduced to 15 years.
Jah Cure his now a free man after serving eight years behind bars, but the question is how will he cope mentally with all the protests that are taking place and is a head to come.
